COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Decadence is a dark Weizenbock featuring malted wheat and a unique German yeast. A complex blend of rich, dark fruit flavors and a yeast derived spiciness create a deliciously balanced beer. Dark ruby hues and smooth full-bodied mouthfeel are highlighted in this classic Bavarian style.

Sampled after aging for two years. Pours with a big head on it and a nice malty taste. Drinks with a big bite from the malts and you can taste the currents deeply embedded in the malts.

2009 pours a deep dark brown and reddish hues when put up to the light. A nice two finger white head is poured and sticks around for a bit. The smell on this one is full of dark fruits, caramel, and chocolate. Not at all what I was expecting in look or aroma. The taste is more of the same but I picked up some spice and banana to go along with everything else. This one still have a little in it and could of easily been laid down for a long time period. It still packed a bunch of flavor and alcohol even at 2 years old. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Coats the mouth.

Rating 1300! Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass. Pours deep clear brown, with a red flash; 1-finger tan head, spotty soft lacing. Nose is spicy wheat, red fruit, plums. Flavours of tobacco, leather, prunes, black walnuts, tar, berries. Killer brew!

Koelschtrinker (15819) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 7, 2011
Malzig-würziger Antrunk auf hohem Niveau. Bananig, trocken, steigendes Malz, das einen süßlichen Unterton hat. Vollmundig, geringe Herbe. Das Malz ist durchgängig stärkstes Aroma und gefällt dabei absolut, das Bier ist cremig, vollmundig und komplex gleichzeitig. Die Bananigkeit fährt zurück, die Hopfigkeit steigt dagegen deutlich. Hefig, man schmeckt den Alkohol heraus, er stört aber nicht. Runder komplexer Weizenbock, der ganz oben mitspielt! 12/13/12/14/12/13

Plovmand (7668) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours almost black with a big steady creamy beige head leaving steady curtains at the glass. The aroma is quite malty and somewhat fruity. Sweet caramel, berries and the alcohol is lightly profound. The flavour is heavy malty and caramelish with wheat, banana and dark fruit. Light licorice and light coffee. Quite creamy textured. Long sweet fruity finish.

jgb9348 (5484) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Deep dark brown coloured body with a hazy, muddy brown and ruby glow, all with a relatively thin tan and light-brown head. Aroma of strong alcohol, malt, pit fruits, earth, nuts and a decent amount of yeast. Pungent full-bodied; Strong yeast and alcohol flavours dominate with a lot of wheat and malt, prunes, pears and some spices touching as well. Aftertaste is potent and deep with the fruit and alcohol taking centre stage - a earthy bit at the end and some nuttiness noticeable, but the alcohol and pit fruits dominate. Overall, a nice and pungent beer with good flavours abound and a sweet, yet strong finish. I sampled this 75 cL bottle complete with gold top, purchased from the Olive Tree MarketPlace in San Diego, California on 09-February-2011 sampled camping in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia in July 2011.

From a bomber. Maple color with thin tan head. Nose is very winey and grapey. Taste follows the nose and is very dry. Not sweet enough for my liking but a modest beer.
